Cara Delevingne Crowned Miss Cool By Vogue Australia: “It Really Thrills Me!”

All hail the queen! Budding supermodel Cara Delevingne has been crowned the Queen of Cool on the October 2013 cover of Vogue Australia. And for the blonde bombshell, life is definitely looking up.

“My first British Vogue cover was a very proud moment—a Vogue cover is a defining moment in the career of any girl, it’s such a respected and iconic fashion title,” she confessed. “Alex Shulman and her team have been very supportive to me from the beginning of my career. I’ve been really lucky…not to mention working with Karl and Chanel, Burberry, YSL, Mulberry. I love a challenge in terms of modeling, and working with animals is so much fun. For Mulberry, the owls, and a giant spider for an i-D cover shoot.”

The 21-year-old and rumored girlfriend of One Direction band mate Harry Styles admits that her current success definitely comes with a price.  “I’m always traveling: I can go between New York and London two times a week, and L.A., Paris and Milan. It is crazy,” says Cara. “I keep in touch with my family, friends, fans…they make me feel at home wherever I am. I travel with things like my music, a onesie, a favorite Burberry leather jacket—that helps. I usually feel very calm and settled on a plane, which is funny.”

With a new role in the film, Anna Kareninaopposite Jude Law and Kiera Knightley, the British model admits that acting and modeling go hand in hand. “I had to learn to take direction and interpret a concept,” she says. “For me, modeling is about becoming a character in the minds of the creative team and being a part of an image. I’m not self-conscious in front of the camera, and I have learned to trust the teams I work with. On the catwalk, it’s also about direction but it’s more theatrical and you only have one chance to get it right. When I first started, I was more familiar with acting so I paid no attention to the camera and it was more like being let loose on set like an animal!”

While Cara may be dominating the modeling world now, acting is definitely her future career. “Being a part of a story and the on-set community, becoming another character, the whole process of bringing someone’s script to life and working with a great director and crew,” she says, “it really thrills me.”
